What do you mean by "check the scheduling"? If you want to see currently running processes, then try "top" and "ps" commands (in terminal window).

"top" will show you a table similar to the task manager in windows, showing the processes and CPU load. Use "ps", if you need to get more info about a particular process.

Another tool, "uptime" can be also an option, but "top" already includes that info - CPU load and usage.

Hope, I answered you question.

Very vague question.

Look at "ls -ld /etc/cron*" as in both the directories
and the files to see schedules for most system tasks.

As root check /var/spool/cron/tabs to see whether other
more specific jobs are scheduled, and if so for who and
at which times.

man cron
for details.
